Forum: etree Subject: Metadata invalid -- even though i've described the files

I'm not sure how to proceed here.

I'm getting the message that the metadata is invalid.. but if i go to describe the files.. all the descriptions are there, and i see that two XML files have been added.

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=33587

I've tried to update the info again by opening file options.. then hitting update. It says the metadata XML was written, but that error never seems to go away.

Thanks,
Mike

"Invalid" is different than "Missing" - invalid means that there are probably some illegal characters in the XML. Missing means that it hasn't received the info from the forms.

Thanks!

i noticed it got fixed.

i wonder what was causing it? i didn't do anything i don't normally do.

Does ---> in the title to signafy a jam that goes into the next song mess it up?

Possibly, the 3 dashes is kinda overkill... Maybe on the next one try just using the arrow ">" like most folks do.

I would even leave out the > in the song titles in the meatdata; just note them in the setlist pane on the details page. That way it leaves the plain, unambigious song title in the tagging within the mp3 files that get made.

I have never had to do that before. Was there some change implemented yesterday? The MCP show didn't even have any segues. Good to see they are both going through now...hopefully it was just a one time glitch!

Sorry, I mentioned that more as a personal preference, since it's more in the category of a setlist note! AFAIK a trailing ">" will not currently break the metadata.

i could imagine that > could mess it up due to XML

If it's anything like html

Maybe replacing > with ) will make a difference.

When metadata was implemented a couple years ago the trailing > *was* a problem at first, but adjusted shortly thereafter I think. Certain other characters in the link Brad pointed to are still a problem.

I've never seen this before and now I've got 2 contributions hanging up because of it. The first one I thought maybe I screwed something up, but I'm not doing anything different than I normally done in the other 375 or so shows I've seeded.

I just editing some punctuation in the filenames, including removing a / in one of them, in case that was making it unhappy. Check in a bit.
